Jordan has not had any lactulose in probably 1-2 months. He is doing awsome. He's eating like a champ. He will even eat dry food (I don't like to feed him dry very often because it makes him more constipate but when I just don't have time to separate him in the morning it is nice to have an option). He is getting to be his sassy old self. It's great to have my sassafrass back. Considering he had not had a normal blood calcium test in a year, and this was the first time I had not given him any lactulose within a couple weeks before the test, I just can't help but wonder what it was. The vet said that more than likely his blood calcium problem will not resolve completely, but I find it intresting that he acts more like himself everyday that he does not have any lactulose. I know there is no "Scientific" evidence that lactulose increases blood calcium, but I'm anxious to have his blood tested in another couple months. I know I've asked this about a billion times, but remind me again what the natural options are for constipation? Also, I believe one puts a cat at increased risk for diabetes, and he is already on pred, so I don't want to add to that possibility.
